    Earnings announcement

    Wed. earnings release should be interesting. The
    street expects 0.32.share, whisper numbers are 0.34. I
    generally don't put much value in whisper numbers, but they
    were 3 for 3 last week in stocks that I
    own.

    With the share offering earlier this year, I think it
    will be difficult to achieve 0.34/share. WCNX would
    need around $90m in revenue for the quarter and a
    decent net profit margin (say 9.5% - not unrealistic for
    Q3). With a more realistic $84 to $85m in revenue,
    WCNX should hit $0.32 if they keep the net profit
    margin up. I had concern earlier that fuel prices would
    have a negative impact, but Ron stated in an earlier
    press release that fuel prices would not have a
    significant impact.

    If they miss their numbers without
    a good, easy to understand explanation, it could
    get ugly. If they hit the whisper numbers, were
    looking at $30+.
